This is call number two (2) for Ubuntu Membership Board call for 
nominations.  I'm adding the Community Team and the LoCo Contacts list 
as I missed them in the first call.


As you may know, Ubuntu Membership is a recognition of significant and 
sustained contribution to Ubuntu and the Ubuntu community. To this end, 
the Community Council recruits members of our current membership 
community for the valuable role of reviewing and evaluating the 
contributions of potential members to bring them on board or assist with 
having them achieve this goal.

We have seven members of our boards expiring from their 2 year terms 
within the next couple months, which means we need to do some restaffing 
of this Membership Board.

We’re looking for Ubuntu Members who can participate either in the 20:00 
UTC meetings or 22:00 UTC (if you can make both, even better).

Both the 20:00 UTC and the 22:00 UTC meetings happen once a month, 
specific day may be discussed by the board upon addition of new members.

We have the following requirements for nominees:

     be an Ubuntu member (preferably for some time)
     be confident that you can evaluate contributions to various parts 
of our community
     be committed to attending the membership meetings
     broad insight into the Ubuntu community at large is a plus

Additionally, those sitting on membership boards are current Ubuntu 
Members with a proven track record of activity in the community. They 
have shown themselves over time to be able to work well with others and 
display the positive aspects of the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. They should 
be people who can discern character and evaluate contribution quality 
without emotion while engaging in an interview/discussion that 
communicates interest, a welcoming atmosphere, and which is marked by 
humanity, gentleness, and kindness. Even when they must deny 
applications, they should do so in such a way that applicants walk away 
with a sense of hopefulness and a desire to return with a more complete 
application rather than feeling discouraged or hurt.

To nominate yourself or somebody else (please confirm they wish to 
accept the nomination and state you have done so), please send a mail to 
the membership boards mailing list (ubuntu-membership-boards at 
lists.ubuntu.com). You will want to include some information about the 
nominee, a launchpad profile link and which time slot (20:00 or 22:00) 
the nominee will be able to participate in.

We will be accepting nominations through Friday July 1st at 12:00 UTC. 
At that time all nominations will be forwarded to the Community Council 
who will make the final decision and announcement.

Thanks in advance to you and to the dedication everybody has put into 
their roles as board members.

Thank you.
